Letter to the Editor Responding to Station Editorial


Posted July 16, 2022


Dear Editor:


Perhaps my response to your ‘Meet in the Middle’ editorial from June 26 may help.  Apparently the issue is two very hot potatoes; my favorite.  They are two truly controversial issues and complete opposites; one to destroy life and the other to defend life.  How much more modern American can it be? 

Now in my seventh decade it is easier to look back and wonder what has happened to the America my Wife and I grew up in. History has become a major lost ingredient in our Nation second only to respect. History was not my favorite subject in school but has become a vulnerable link to reality.  I knew something was wrong when ‘Don’t Bees’ were struck from the TV series Romper Room.  In high school I wondered why the ‘dress code’ was banished. Living through my teen-years was easy for me because respect for parents and government was still intact but wavering.

The 1960s revolution from morality and responsibility was a real temptation for us who still believe we were Created by an actual Creator, instead of believing their ancestors live in zoos! When God and Country were marginalized and/or rejected, a new reality was bound to replace it. When something as obvious as childbirth to mother and father is redefined, then the family is re-imagined too.  

History records two people who were not delivered through their mother’s womb and we knew them as Adam and Eve but they have been ignored too. Abortion is clearly terminal to an unborn child and usually premeditated!  How is that not murder?  Obviously murder does not always require a gun.  It became another ‘industry’ subsided and legalized, called abortion. 

When my father advised me to respect the man with badge and the gun, it was clear to me as a teenager to respect the police. It is still good advice.  I always knew guns were designed to cause injury and/or death. When America’s Constitution was developed it included ‘the right of the people to keep and bear Arms’; a provision for citizens to defend their life from mayhem and murder.  Gun control becomes a problem when the one pulling the trigger no longer respects his fellow kind.  

So meeting in the middle will be extremely difficult in our present degenerate culture. My fear is also more division and controversy especially for Americans who doubt that our nation was in part by ‘Divine Intervention’!
